Coming of Age

















Well, we finally made it to 1000 hits. Actually, we made 1000 hits and kept going...whoah. For some reason I've really been focused on reaching 1000 hits, it feels like a big landmark to me. So...here we are...the sites been up for about eigth months now, and it gets a fair amount of regular traffic. Hopefully as the various things I'm working on get published I'll see more and more people checking the place out.

Okay...why the Firefly pic'? Well, I'd love to say "Why did nobody tell me how incredible this series is?" or "Why did no-one tell me that I simply had to wtach it because I'd love it?" but, of course, lots of people said exactly that. I'm half way through the second disc of the boxed set and...whoah...this is incredible. Joss Whedon is a genius. I loved the movie, but I can't wait to watch it again once I've finished watching the series. It would be a real shame if there was no more of this made.

Visionary had a successful trip to the Philly Con', and there'll be some big announcements coming out of that in the near future. Sadly, the big news I was hoping to have in the wake of the con' doesn't look like happening, at least not yet anyway. I do have a very exciting project coming up through Visionary though, I'll be inking and colouring an eight page strip pencilled by Maluk's Paul Ridgon, and written by someone fairly special. Not too sure exactly how much I'm allowed to say about it just yet, so I'll announce more details of that closer to the time.

Well, that's all for today, really. I did want to do something big to mark 1000 hits, but I couldn't think of anything in the end. I guess that'll just have to wait for the 10,000 mark!

If you think Firefly is good now my friend, it just keeps getting better. Then when you finish all 4 discs pop Serenity back on. Then watch the series again with the commentary on.

I spent a week off work ill and did just that, amazing. The week after I was down in the dumps and I realised it's because I was actually missing the characters. That's how good it really it. I'm now an addict and have the graphic novel, series soundtrack(best opening theme ever), and a book analysing the series and it's cultural significance. At this rate my baby will have to be called Joss.

Sorry about the bad news from the con. Still, this new project sounds pretty awesome. AND you're working with the best up-and-coming writer in the business ;)

Roll on the next 1000...
